This car is a great all purpose vehicle and HIGH performance for the money. Where can you get a car that will exceed 140 mph and transport 10ft pieces of pipe inside with 4 people. The ride is as good as the road you are driving on!! You have the feel of control at all speeds. The factor of Safety was never lost with this car. This is my fifth Volvo since 1988. The wagon V70R is a sleeper on the road.
I like the style of the body and comfortable interior. The gear-tronics trany is fun. Being able to decide to pass that other car or just get out of there with just a push of the petal.
The turning radius is too large. The gear-tronic should shift faster. Add rear heated seats. Aux. input to radio for MP3 player.
